Professor ALEX KACELNIK, University of Oxford. Bird Intelligence


Wednesday 21st February 2018

In recent seasons we have heard about several aspects of bird biology, but this time we consider their brains. Birds know far more than you might think: some species exhibit forms of intelligence that are superior to young humans. They make quite complex decisions and can even select and use tools. This talk will focus on laboratory work on intelligent problem-solving and tool use in crows and cockatoos and will be supported by video films, etc. It promises to be fascinating.
